On this episode of AirWreckRadio Cory wonders why it is that the least informed social-media users are often the loudest. Stacey explains that it’s the Dunning Kruger Effect at work.
In the news this week, the Saudi Government murdered an American journalist and President Donald J. Trump says that they said they didn’t, even though American intelligence agencies say they did. A man like our President is unable to use intelligence, and that is also an example of the Dunning Kruger Effect at work.
Closing things up, it appears that the world’s oldest living thing, Pando, an 80,000 year old tree, might finally be ready to throw in the towel. Cory is rightfully upset by this, but Stacey thinks maybe 80,000 years is a pretty good run. Why is this happening? We don’t know, but you’d better believe there are a million headlines out that that include the phrase “Scientists Stumped.”
